    Got One!!

    Cool, congratulations!
  2. OK, since I earned it with my score, I thought I'd get it...
  3. When Atari created Space Invaders for the 2600, they created something unique so they chose to do something similar with the 5200 version. They created their own version of the game, which I think is cool. Atari 5200 Guy explained it in detail so I'm not going to repeat what he said. This is a case where different is cool. 🙂
  4. I voted Missile Command but Crystal Castles is a good choice as well.
  5. I purchased something on Ebay and the item just showed as "post office is waiting for package" for over 2 weeks. When I contacted the seller, it turns out their entire home and everything they owned was lost in the fires. I felt horrible for the person.
  6. I'd love to get the XEGS version of Crystal Castles. I don't know if it has true trak-ball control, though. That'd be nice.
  7. I think many of us are not fans of PRGE in August. I'd rather go in October but I think the issue for the move was due to the convention center schedule, not the organizers of the event. I've only seen one 7800 on sale at a retro event. It was the original model with the expansion port. I was tempted!
  8. We so need Crystal Castles on the 7800! With POKEY sound...though the 2600 did pretty well with the sound and music for the game.
  9. Interesting take on the Klax game formula! Looks cool!
  10. Glad you enjoyed it on a retry. I play it with a trak-ball controller, even if it is in joystick mode. Unfortunately, this is not a game that fan be simply hacked to get a true trak-ball mode. Apparently the entire game would need to rewritten to accomplish that.
  11. They cut corners when making the manual. The game itself is fine and pretty impressive on the system. The manual is bland with essentially just one color outside of black. I so missed those fantastic color manuals we used to get!
